Up for sale is one of the most desirable flutes on the market. The Yamaha 814W wood flute is arguably one of the best modern wooden flutes on the market today. It features the EC cut lip plate (carved out of a solid piece of Grenadilla wood) giving a powerful, responsive edge to the beauty of sound from this flute. The tone-holes are hand-crafted and inset and the keywork, posts and pillars are all of sterling silver construction with white gold springs. These flutes have a beautiful sound, mellow yet powerful and perfect for modern orchestral work or early music. It is an absolute joy to play and hard to find on the used market.
This particular flute has closed-holes with offset G, split E and the added benefit of a B-Foot. It is offered in beautiful condition and has been fully serviced. (Please note that if posting, especially abroad, a further adjustment may be needed on arrival). Pads are excellent and have plenty of life in them. This flute retailed at over £11,000 with this specification and therefore this is a superb opportunity for a stunning and sought-after flute in beautiful condition, at a massive saving on the original list price.
